    NAME

    sigwait - wait for queued signals
     
    

    SYNOPSIS

    #include <signal.h>

    int sigwait(const sigset_t *restrict set, int *restrict sig);
     

    DESCRIPTION

    The sigwait() function shall select a pending signal from set, atomically clear it from the system's set of pending signals, and return that signal number in the location referenced by sig. If prior to the call to sigwait() there are multiple pending instances of a single signal number, it is implementation-defined whether upon successful return there are any remaining pending signals for that signal number.  If the implementation supports queued signals and there are multiple signals queued for the signal number selected, the first such queued signal shall cause a return from sigwait() and the remainder shall remain queued. If no signal in set is pending at the time of the call, the thread shall be suspended until one or more becomes pending. The signals defined by set shall have been blocked at the time of the call to sigwait(); otherwise, the behavior is undefined. The effect of sigwait() on the signal actions for the signals in set is unspecified.

    If more than one thread is using sigwait() to wait for the same signal, no more than one of these threads shall return from sigwait() with the signal number. Which thread returns from sigwait() if more than a single thread is waiting is unspecified.

    Should any of the multiple pending signals in the range SIGRTMIN to SIGRTMAX be selected, it shall be the lowest numbered one. The selection order between realtime and non-realtime signals, or between multiple pending non-realtime signals, is unspecified. <img src="../images/opt-end.gif" alt="[Option End]" border="0">  

    RETURN VALUE

    Upon successful completion, sigwait() shall store the signal number of the received signal at the location referenced by sig and return zero. Otherwise, an error number shall be returned to indicate the error.  

    ERRORS

    The sigwait() function may fail if:

    EINVAL
    The set argument contains an invalid or unsupported signal number.

    The following sections are informative.  

    EXAMPLES

    None.  

    APPLICATION USAGE

    None.  

    RATIONALE

    To provide a convenient way for a thread to wait for a signal, this volume of IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 provides the sigwait() function. For most cases where a thread has to wait for a signal, the sigwait() function should be quite convenient, efficient, and adequate.

    However, requests were made for a lower-level primitive than sigwait() and for semaphores that could be used by threads. After some consideration, threads were allowed to use semaphores and sem_post() was defined to be async-signal and async-cancel-safe.

    In summary, when it is necessary for code run in response to an asynchronous signal to notify a thread, sigwait() should be used to handle the signal. Alternatively, if the implementation provides semaphores, they also can be used, either following sigwait() or from within a signal handling routine previously registered with sigaction().  

    FUTURE DIRECTIONS

    None.
